LOOKING S.W OVER LAKE ONTARIO LARGE TRIANGLE,BRIGHT WHITE/YELLOW LIGHTS AT POINTS.NOT MOVING.AT ARMS LENGHT DISTANCE FULL THUMB APPRX 3.1/4 INCHS

DRIVING SOUTH ON GRAND BLVD ( CROSS STREET UPPERMIDDLE RD ) NOTICED THREE LIGHTS SHAPED LIKE A TRIANGLE. THOUGHT IT WAS STRANGE THAT THREE AIRCRAFT WOULD BE TRAVELLING IN A PERFECT TRIANGLE.I STOPPED FOR A RED LIGHT AND CONT'D TO WATCH. THE LIGHTS DID NOT MOVE AND THE OBJECT DID NOT LOSE ITS TRIANGULAR SHAPE. THE LIHTS AT THE APEXES WERE FAIRLY BRIGHT. THEY DIDN'T FLICKER BUT I'M SURE THEY HAD A WHITE THEN WHITE/YELLOW THEN WHITE APPEARANCE. THIS OBJECT WAS HUGE, I HELD MY ARM OUT AND THE OBJECT WAS AS BIG AS MY FULL THUMB FROM WHERE IT JOINS MY HAND TO THE TIP APPRX 3.1/4 INCHES . IT WAS ALMOST DARK ( HEAVY DUSK )I OBSERVED THAT THE INSIDE THE TRIANGLE WAS DARKER THAN THE SKY , THUS GIVING IT SHAPE/FULLNESS. IT WAS THIS OBSERVATION THAT CONVINCED ME THAT I WAS DEFINATLY OBSERVING SOMETHING ABNORMAL. I DROVE EAST ON UPPERMIDDLE RD FOR APPRX 1 MILE THEN PROCEDED SOUTH ON FORD DRIVE LOOKING WEST IT WAS STILL THERE... HUGE !! AT THIS POINT I JOINED THE HWY AND LOST SIGHT. I PHONED MY WIFE RIGHT AWAY AND SHE WENT OUSIDE TO THE END OF THE DRIVE AND SHOULD HAVE BEEN ABLE TO SEE THE OBJECT. SHE PHONED ME BACK RIGHT AWAY AND SAW NOTHING. I WAS TRAVELLING EAST SO I CAREFULLY LOOKED BACK TO THE SOUTH WEST NOW EXPECTING TO SEE THREE PLANES OR SOMETHING BUT THERE WAS NOTHING NOTHING AT ALL. THERE WERE NO STARS IN THE SKY AT THIS TIME. THERE WAS 1/2 MOON, BUT THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN SOUTH EAST OF ME SHAPE * LIGHTS AT TIPS * * END
